I'm not a chocolate chip cookie fan. I'd much rather have an Oatmeal Scotchie, or a Snickerdoodle. If I have to eat a chocolate chip cookie I go Chips Ahoy before I go homemade. So there...now you know.
When Husband saw this recipe and asked me to make it, I wasn't thrilled...but I'll try anything once. The result I got from this cookie is - pleasantly chocolate with a slight honey taste and almost cakey consistency.
Where (I'm being honest here)-I'm not a fan of them-Husband is really liking them, and didn't take them to work today so he'd have some to eat tonight when he got home.
I will say that baking with honey made me feel a little better...you know more hippie than just using my white or brown sugar...*shrugs*
Let me know how they turn out if YOU make them!
